Buster's

I stopped in at Buster's in South Pasadena the other day. Buster's is great for coffee, tea, cookies, brownies and ice cream (they also have sandwiches, but I've never tried those).

The place was busy. A bona fide South Pas hangout. It was noisy downstairs and completely quiet upstairs. I wonder if it's always that way.

Hey, who left their wallet on the counter?

It seems like a nice place. I hope the missing wallet gets back to its owner!

Cof-feee, cof-feee, cof-feee...

I dont really care for coffee, but where theres coffee theres sweets! The Koffee Kake shop in Terrell has this awesome mandarine glaze muffin...Yum. Did I just see you on HIMYM?

Knoxville Girl said...

If this place has coffee AND wifi, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Bernie K. said...

Jim, what the h*ll is HIMYM—? Does it go with coffee?

Petrea said...

Hope so, too, Marley. I didn't leave my wallet there, but I sure left some cash.

Yes ma'am, USelaine...

Jim, was that the place with the yellow walls you featured? As for HIMYM, yes you did, if they didn't cut me. It hasn't aired here yet. How was it?

Knoxville Girl, I just searched the reviews--no wifi. Yet.

"How I Met Your Mother," Bernie. I'm on tonight's episode!

I really love this photo -- fun looking down on the action, and so many things to read and goodies to look at! I'll have a chocolate shake with a shot of espresso and a chocolate chip cookie please. For here. I want to stay a while and read Pasadena Magazine. How cool that you're on HIMYM! Ok, I'll admit I've never seen it, but I'll sure watch it tonight!

USelaine said...

Dag nabbit, now you're planting ideas in my head about buying TV service again. [shakes her fist at Petrea] I wonder if they'll have it on over at the laundromat...

Oh, now look. I'm writing stage directions in my posts!

Baaaaaaahhhhhhh.......

Jim said...

Yep, I was talking about Koffee Kake. I dont know what they put in the muffins but they are soooo goood.

My last few posts have been about a race for the Deborah Kay Foundation, Deborah Kay (Debbie) is the person who runs Koffee Kake.

You were super BTW.

Petrea said...

Katie, you can order for me! That sounds gooooooood. Now don't get all excited. It's a *brief* appearance. Although they did put me in a designer dress with a very cute purse.;)

Stage directions! uselaine, you made me laugh. Got a friend with a TV? That's all you need.

Jim, you're sweet to say I was super. I had two lines. If they didn't cut one.

Fresh from Launderland in Evergreen Shopping Center

Sorry about the framing. I'll do better next time.

Katie said...

Ok so I got a little distracted watching HIMYM (I was doing a little hand sewing project) and I missed you! I see that the episode is available online; could you share which part of the show you're in? I don't want to miss seeing you in the cute dress and purse! I guess you weren't wearing a pink top, which is of course what I expected to see you wearing.

USelaine said...

Petrea tells the main character woman that her clothes are interesting, but her paintings are not, when they go to a gallery. (Hint - see my link provided above).

Katie said...

Thanks Uselaine -- I actually remember that scene, but obviously Petrea you are such a great actor that I only saw the character! Now I can watch it again and know it's you!

And I really need this coffee shop right now; I could hardly drag myself out of bed and I don't have time to make coffee before heading to work. Argh!!

Petrea said...

ha ha, you guys are too funny! It's a tough business, Katie. Even for those little parts, they'll go through 2500 head shots and audition 15-20 actors.

uselaine, good eye. Not to mention your sense of humor!

USelaine said...

We're all on Team Petrea. Your "wing" people, if you will. I was proud to have my whites tumble drying with your screen credit rolling.

Petrea said...

Ah, multitasking. I'm glad you saw the credits. My husband had the remote...moved on before we got to the end so I didn't get to see that part.

diva said...

That dress is lovely...fits like a dream. Can't say as much for the script. You go, Petrea

Petrea said...

Thank you, diva. Wardrobe was really fun. They had nothing but designer dresses for me.

Bernie K. said...

"I was proud to have my whites tumble drying with your screen credit rolling."

I was searching for the right superlative to describe my admiration for your thespianisim, but U.S. E. beat me to it.

The show, let's say it—bites. The script was, um, written by chimpanzees (but union apes!).

Dunno why they don't just fire the other actors & rewrite everything so it can be about you … you can go around in fabulous outfits, looking all angular & hot, & sometimes a plot-point will drift past like a tumbleweed …

Petrea said...

Boy, you guys, I feel like I should defend the hard-working WGA members who write sitcoms. A good friend writer-producer has told me what it's like to try to get a decent joke past the Network suits. They're terribly restricted in what they can say, the sitcom structure is limiting, and hey--the show's very popular. Apparently with a crowd other than photo blog fanciers, however!

I like your idea, Bernie, but I don't know if there are enough photo blog fanciers to watch a sitcom all about me. Unless maybe we could do it in webisodes.

USelaine said...

... I think you're on to something there, Petrea. "Beneath The City of the Sex" could be set in Pasadena in webisode format! Bernie, over to you ...

Petrea said...

uselaine: maybe the Sex In the City girls could use a mother hen.

USelaine said...

Petrea, it's best you made this error here, and not in Paris. It's Sex And The City. It's okay, I had to check it myself. Don't worry. No one will know.

USelaine said...

Not.

Petrea said...

Oh uselaine, I'm sure I've already made that error in Paris. Friends forgive friends, don't they?
